Movie Info

This original full length movie from the Dragonball anime franchise lays down the premise of the many films and TV series in the Dragonball universe from the beginning. It tells the story of a boy named Goku, who together with his seven oddball friends, is on a quest to find the seven mystical Dragon Balls - artifacts that have the power to summon the Eternal Dragon, and grant the one who collects them a wish. But the adventure that it takes to find the balls is not that easy, and even if Goku

Audience Reviews for Doragon bru: Shenron no densetsu (Dragon Ball: Curse of the Blood Rubies) (Dragon Ball: The Legend)

The Japanese version is by far much better than the English version of the series because of the lack of censorship on it. If you're new to the Dragon Ball franchise, this movie is a great place to pick up if you don't feel like watching the first saga of the series. Though the story is different in many aspects, it can sum up a ton of episodes in a very short period of time if you want to just jump into the action of the series. All of the main characters are introduced with the exception of Emperor Pilaf and his goons, whom are in the first saga. In place of Emperor Pilaf, you'll be meeting King Gurumes. The way the characters meet is a bit different, but you'll end up in about the same place with either the series or this movie. Dragon Ball: Curse of the Blood Rubies is a bit more "cutesy" than the original Dragon Ball series and seems to be a bit more aimed at a younger audience than the series itself is. That doesn't mean it's a bad movie though, but anyone coming in directly from the series may find themselves a tad disappointed. Overall I recommend this movie to anyone who's interested in the Dragon Ball series, regardless if you've seen the first saga or not. It's a fun animation, and though a bit slow in some parts, will keep you interested until the end.

It's basically a really fast paced Dragon Ball episode that kinda goes through the first story arc of the Dragon Ball series. Characters meet up in different ways and instead of Emperor Pilaf the antagonist is the hungry King Gourmeth.
